Procrastination Destination: Hot Dudes from History

If your discipline involves studying the past but you’re feeling rather undisciplined, today’s Procrastination Destination is just right for you. My Daguerreotype Boyfriend is a Tumblr “where early photography meets extreme hotness.”

Each post features a dude from the past whose appeal we can still today enjoy thanks to the invention of photography. Some daguerreotypes’ sources or subjects are not known (this guy is unknown but bears a strong resemblance to Orlando Bloom) while others are accompanied by interesting trivia or witty comments. Some daguerreotypes might serve as welcome fashion inspiration in these days of sweatpants and flip-flops. What they all have in common: these dudes have got it going on.

Procrastination Destination Du Jour: The Book of Biff

Today’s procrastination site, The Book of Biff, is a webcomic by Chris Hallbeck that dates back to January 2006. The comic is updated daily Monday through Friday and stars Biff, a strange man who seems to have insect-like feelers. Each comic is a one-panel picture of Biff in a bizarre situation, followed by a caption about the lesson that Biff has learned from his experience. Matter-of-fact and frequently absurd, it can be a great way to pass the time. Here are some rather entertaining ones to check out:

Be sure to read Hallbeck’s anecdotes. Below most comics, he writes a paragraph or so talking about an experience in his life that either inspired him to make that day’s comic or comes to mind when reading it.
